Starbase Columbus Grand Re-opening

On Saturday, September 17, 2016 Starbase Columbus, an iconic Star Trek & Science Fiction store held its grand re-opening celebration.  Originally founded by BJ Mitias in November of 1992, the store still stands as a testament to the popularity and legacy of Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who and other iconic science fiction shows.  Having wanted to retire for some time, Ms. Mitias was planning to close the store at the end of 2016.  Efforts had been made by store staff members to save Starbase but time was running out.

Enter The Federation.  This organization, co-founded in 1984 by Russ Haslage and Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry stepped in at the eleventh hour and purchased the store, thus saving it for future generations of Trekkers and other Sci-fi enthusiasts.
